Painting the Dynamic Still Life

Cancelled due to Corona

Cost: $450

Skill Level: All levels

Paint looser, and more confidently during this three-day workshop with Oregon artist

Sarah Sedwick! Take a step-by-step approach to alla prima oil painting, from black-and-white studies to brilliant color. Build a beautiful composition with life and movement, get

a new perspective on the still life, and learn tips for bringing inspiration to your home

studio practice.


We’ll also delve into the fundamentals of good design, creating black and white oil

studies to plan compositions that work. Emphasis will be placed on working from the

general to the specific - big value shapes first, small details later.


Using a split-primary palette as our color foundation - two reds, two yellows, and two

blues - we’ll do quick, fun exercises to focus on loosening up our brushwork before

creating a finished piece. Sarah will demonstrate, and work with each student
